DPAI Architecture together with Philip Toms of Toms + McNally Design, were given the task to renovate a designated heritage house in Hamilton, Ontario.

The original house is an example of 1930s Streamline Moderne architecture, which was given a full restoration, with a second storey added.

 

This is what the house looked like before the renovations.

And here is what it looked like after, with a second storey added, that is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass.

Touches of the original home have been kept, like the built-in bookshelves.

The bright retro turquoise of the kitchen really pops against the white cabinets and walls.

At the top of the stairs is a living space with balcony access, that takes advantage of the views with the wrap-around windows.
